National Mills Open Weekend 10 – 11 May 2003

THIS year more than 400 working Windmills and Watermills will be opened to the public all over the UK. Some mills will have small entrance charges, around £2.00, and at some there will be the opportunity to buy flour ground by the mills them selves! The event co-ordinated by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings will have enthusiasts and other members of the public the opportunity to see our endangered living history of our countryside and towns. Working mills are now very scares, but thanks to the resurgence of organic foods there are now 35 commercial wind and watermills in the UK. 

Copies of the are available by post, price £3.50 including p&p. Send cheques or postal orders made payable to SPAB Mills Section, 37 Spital Square, London E1 6DY. Charity No. 231307

Southport Reporter has hunted down a local windmill that has just come on the market, so if you have £450,000 to spend you could be the owner of a Windmill at Kirkham, just out side Preston. The owner Brian Peet, told us that “Living in the Windmill has been a dream come true. We are sad to go, but all our four kids have left home and the 5 bedrooms in our converted mill are now just far too big for us. After 7 years we are putting the windmill on the market, and we want to move to a smaller building in the Fylde countryside.” 

“It is very hard thing to do as we have so many happy memories and the views are amazing. But at the end of the day, it is to big and a shame to stop some one eels who has a family from the experience.” His wife Sandra Peet added.
